As Design at Business represents a diverse community of creators, innovators, and change makers that collaborate for advancing the adoption of meaningful innovation practices, it drives programs that unite contributors to work together.
Data from the World Economic Forum reports that 50% of all workers will need reskilling by 2025.
Design at Business will contribute to that reskilling challenge. We will use our Chapters around the world to identify the areas that are the priority for reskilling, and we will use our talented members to provide the necessary insights and training.
An inspiring program that will help community participants and their organizations to innovate their approach to innovation so they are better equipped to tackle their most pressing challenges.
It will explore, developing and testing new innovation methodologies and business strategies in the real-life context or organizations.
It will help the community and participating organization to push the boundaries, create thought leadership and strengthen their ability to innovate; it aims to deliver actual innovation, publications and abody of knowledge that can be shared through exclusive training sessions.
Because we feel huge challenges on sustainability, energy, healthcare and education, present us with ethical & social dilemmas.
Dilemmas that need systemic change and go well beyond the scope of separate organizations.
We need to innovate how we approach and collaborate to improve on such dilemma's
The global program of "Future Trends" at Design at Business will cover and explore all relevant aspects within the discourse of strategic foresight and design management.
This program looks at all sorts of future engagements and relevant topics that will
contribute to actively adding to the value proposition of the DatB Community.
Quoting Professor Tony Fry‘s „Design Futuring“ (2009), this global program shall intend and conceive:
„The making of an environment of care“.
Designing Future is a responsibility.
Get in touch with your chapter leads or with me directly to find out more on this program.
Happy to setup some coffee time and exchange with you on sparkling ideas and visions.
The program "Initiative for sustainability" is focused on the application of innovation practices generating an impact in society.
The team works closely with the other programs to create synergies, apply approaches and enable outcomes from SKILL UP, CO CREATE and FUTURE TRENDS.
“Genius is in the idea. Impact, however, comes from action.” Simon Sinek
At DatB, we join forces, create bridges and collaborate for advancing the adoption of meaningful innovation practices both in business and society at large.
We see ourselves not only responsible for evolving innovation practices but also making a purposeful impact in society.
With the program "Initiative for Society", we are offering an environment for EVERYONE to apply these new approaches.
Get in touch with the program lead directly if you are interested in building the concept for this program together, if you have ideas and/or connections to projects that might be interesting for us to support and get involved in.
Please note that this program will be picked up in fall 2022.
